Tales of the Korthian Hold
the first chapter
to a grim fantasy adventure full of peril and drama written and
illustrated by Kevin P. Croall.
"Be you crafty,
strong and bold!
Those with weapons
already our hates press them hard."
Wagner, Gotterdamerung, II, I
For the dwarves of the Korthian Hold, last of their ancient
heritage, the end of summer marked the arrival of a deeper
chill than the expected autumn winds.
The goblins, stirring in the north, have begun to spread their icy influence
across the lands. So it is that the dwarves' tranquil valley, once a bastion
of peace, is threatened, and it falls upon Krae, the dwarves' dubious leader,
to prepare his kin for the coming chaos.
" KRAE Tales of the Korthian Hold
has everything I loved about the silver age comics in the same genre. The mix
of characters, the rough action, and even the art stylings... pardon the pun
but there is something 'magic' going on here... in an almost Buscema/Conan fashion.
A leather-clad moss-covered tribute to the fantasy books of bygone days."
